as first and foremost as a foreign policy nation security president. that was what he really loved to do. that what really met to him the most. the idea that you would have the president of the united states like barack obama, who has, in my view, actually, pragmatic and reasonable foreign policy, but for whom policy is enough, but not a priority. i think richard nixon would have great difficulty identifying with that. the second thing is, the thing which i think in common if you talk about richard nixon and ronald reagan was, obviously, they were fairly big men in their own way, in a different way, and they never would say my party, my republican party, right or wrong. what i think they would say, and reagan arian takelated well, i will not speak ill of a fellow republican. when you hear this kind inside the republican party, and when you have a crisis like that, few republican senators essentially, like that administration and focusing on tactical errors of the departed, there is something -- something that ronald reagan and richard nixon, in my view, would not be able to identify with

there are maybe two categories of copulation. those having political power. it is a matter of foreign policy. the other category deals with millions of people for which you have information from private service providers. you can ask them to provide information before providing it to the nsa. first, you have the harvest everything. this is under the category of population outside the scope of international security. which is quite wider than other countries. it is not a solution that we have in europe, and that is why when we see this data collected, we cannot only think of fighting against terrorism, but also thinking about offering things like that. >> we say it is about stopping terrorists, but is it about having a competitive edge, trolling for consumer behaviors and getting an edge on the competition in an economic war rather than a war on terrorism? >> everybody is paying everybody. they collect data. imagine 42% increase since 2010. everybody is collaborating with this kind of cyber espionage and criminality. it is not a question of one or the other, everyone is doing that. in 2012, t
supporting our foreign policy and national security objectives that we are more effectively weighing the risks and rewards of our activities that we are focused above all on threats to the american people. we need to ensure are collecting information not just because we can but because we should. because we need it for our security. so again, i won't go on too long. i think it's important top context you'llize some of these revelations to look at what the administration is doing to review our intelligence activities and to look at how we balance the need for security in this completely transformed world that we live in because of the technology advances that have occurred. and then against, as i said earlier, the clear and real privacy concerns that americans and people around the world share. >> you just mentioned that it's important for us to make sure that our intelligence gathering above all is about protecting american security and you and the president in the past have talked about the nsa really being focused on things like terrorism, proliferation of wmds. can au sure our all
frank discussions. mark, you and i have covered foreign policy a long time. this is a very unhappy group of people. to a certain extent there's spying everywhere. we know that. it's a little shock. there's gambling at mr. rick's. the germans want the same special relationship of no spying agreement that we have with the uk. at the same time, i think there really is anger about they said the flash point was merkel's cell phone. >> yeah, i think that's right, andrea. it's not just anger but embarrassment on their part. remember, the first allegations of potential nsa surveillance in europe came up during the summer. at the time the germans were among those saying we understand it. we think as a dispute it's ebbing away. our concerns have been more or less met. i think there's now a feeling they climbed down and didn't make a huge case out of it in the summer only to find out it was more persuasive, lasted longer and involved the top official and their government. so they have a lot of egg on their own face. what was interesting about the long article der spiegel published over the weekend,
of how american foreign policy should work. >> when was john foster dulles secretary of state? >> both of them came to power at the same time. they were sworn in immediately after president eisenhower took office in 1953. it was the only time in american history that siblings had controlled the overt and covert sides of foreign policy. >> you have a second part of your book about six monsters. i have the pictures here. the first one is mossadegh. if i could get a brief synopsis about who they are. in 1821, john quincy adams made a famous speech on the fourth of july. he said, america does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. but the dulles brothers did. they were carrying out a secret world war even at a time when we thought we were at peace. they went after six monsters, six figures that they found evil in the world. minister was prime mossadegh of iran who they overthrew that your. the next year, they overthrew president arbenz in guatemala. the next year, they launched an operation against ho chi minh. was failed miserably and the operation that dragged the united states
foreign policy or national security rate policy, except that president obama this does seem to be having any luck getting the iranians to scale back their nuclear program by there. >> what the majority of americans of feeling. so frustrated over the middle east. lou: i don't see that reflected in the polls. >> afghanistan. we keep having them in this area. >> i think the next person to run a war in the middle east is going to probably -- that might just be something that we create political consequence for in this country. lou: barack obama. by the way, is constrained in that regard, i think, is absolutely appropriate. >> i take you are not exactly comfortable with farming at the end game to the russians. >> no. the matter of fact, i think that the endgame is a fool's game. we have watch it for 60 years. it is time for this country and others, would point specifically to the europeans to start taking a different approach. we talk about real, real human lives will we talk to us in the air trips to the middle east. we are seeing an abject fools recommend long distance wars that are bloodle
their positions, foreign policy. russian foreign policy, policy toward the united states from ssian ambassador himself and -- i don't need to introduce them. everybody knows. ambassador pickering and pfifer.or we will try to make this as informal as possible. which makes sense. we'll have like five or seven minutes for each of you to speak, and then if you want to ask questions, i'm sure you have asked questions of each other many, many times in your life, but now you can do it with microphones. we have two microphones here in the room. if you want to ask a question, have you to come to those microphones for your questions. it will be recorded by six men. so adjust your seats. if you would like to ask a question, i suggest you move now closer to the microphone, otherwise you have to go past so many people and wait in line for the microphone. what about russian-u.s. relations? in ink we all enjoy drama the u.s.-russian relations. you need the drama. when there is no drama, we try to find one. it is like an interesting ong-time game to play. if you look at the reality, what's going on between tw
of the region, the last measure of american foreign policy should be how it is received by the house. if there were a price for most irresponsible foreign policy, it would be surely be awarded to saudi arabia. it is the nation most responsible for the rise of islamic radicalism and militancy across the world. over the past four decades, the kingdoms immense oil wealth has been used to underwrite the export of an extreme intolerant and violent version of islam. go anywhere in the world from germany to indonesia and you will find islamic centers flush with saudi money spouting intolerance and hate. a top treasury official said -- >> if i could snap my fingers and cut off funding from one country, it would be saudi arabia. >> hillary clinton confirmed that saudi arabia remained a critical financial base for terrorism. she also said that there was only limited action to stop flow of funds from taliban and other such terrorists groups. saudi arabia was one of three countries in the world to recognize and support the taliban-led government in afghanistan until the 9/11 attacks. it is also
blowers. >> reporter: the allegations threaten to disrupt foreign policies with u.s. allies. >> i think the revelation from snowdon and the secrets revealed are doing significant damage to our bilateral relationships with germany, with mexico, with the other countries where the suggestion is that we've listened in. >> reporter: but congressman peter king, the chairman of the house homeland security committee said america should stop apologizing. >> the reality is that the nsa has saved thousands of lives not just in the usa but france, germany, and throughout europe. >> reporter: former vice president dick cheney agrees the u.s. should remain cautious. >> our over all surveillance abilities are important and need to be preserved. >> reporter: and it remains to be seen if that careful diplomacy will go over so smoothly with lawmakers on their three-day visit to washington this week. >> al jazeera, we're live in washington, and the white house has yet to respond to the latest report of spying to world leaders? >> reporter: not officially. we have a briefing coming up in just over an hour

. >> essentially it comes down to two facts about u.s. foreign policy in the middle east - one, the u.s. is committed to maintaining the peace treaty between egypt and israel. it cannot end a relationship with egypt in order to maintain the peace treaty. that is where you see some of the material, some of the military parts that are being given to the military to help preserve the security in the sinai peninsula. there's the matter of enhancing the u.s.'s stature across the great e-middle east. it would -- greater middle east. it would not do for the barack obama situation to cut off all ties with a country with whom it has had a longstanding political relationship. one of points that john kerry is making whilst in cairo is that the interim government, backed by the military, can't exist inperpetuaty, it needs to get on with establishing elections for a democratic-elected parliament and needs to take the steps sooner rather than later. >> let's talk about the visit to cairo. we didn't know about it until he landed, which makes you think iraq, afghanistan - dangerous places. what are t

an impact on u.s. foreign policy, on the way it talks and discusses and not only that, collects information, and it's also having an impact in the fact that, you know, lots of people in europe, especially leaders, are not cutting the u.s. as much slack as they might have done in the past. partly, they're saying, because the u.s. under the obama administration, is backing off a lot of the burden sharing, a lot of the heavy lifting that traditionally the u.s. has done in support of its allies over the past. >> because of the fallout, bought of the anger amongst the world leaders, julian, do you think someone's head should roll over this? >> well, we're going to see what the administration does. i think two things to remember. president obama himself raised a lot of the expectations about the differences with how he would conduct national security operations and those resonated both here and around the world. so it might be that in the end, he tries to blame someone. he himself now by -- with this report coming out that he ordered this to stop, it's something of an admission this shouldn't be
hatred and extremism throughout the region. but foreign policy is not a zero-sum game. if we can find ways to resolve disputes peacefully, we are wise to explore them. engagement is not appeasement, nor is it containment. we know what those are, we know where they lead, and we will not pursue them. and president obama has repeatedly made clear that words are not enough. action must match words. we understand why this is so important to so many people. because we've all been to yad vashem. earlier this year, i had the opportunity to revisit yad vashem. i had been there before, but this time was special for, because i brought my son, ziller, with me. i wanted him to see the harsh realities of the depths of evil, and the beautiful tribute to the victims of the past.

friendship ith other countries. if you follow iraq's foreign policy, you would see that the iraqis think independently and not according to the interest of any others. we have a partnership an agreement with the united states. this is something some other countries do not like. that we like it, this is what matters. be believed to have a strong relation within the united states. if others do not agree, it is their problem. they cannot impose anything on the iraqis. if they want to be our friends our friendship does not impose on us being enemies of others. >> how do you respond to critics -- this is not coming from me, but a question from someone else -- say you are consolidating power and this has adversely affected iraq's democratic process? >> the constitution and ruling in iraq gives prerogative. this is something i state clearly. let me know when i act in an unconstitutional way. if i act in a way that is not acceptable to some of our partners, as long as i am committing to respecting the constitution and as long as i use my prerogative in a constitutional way, there should ot be a

security adviser reordered priorities on foreign policy and this is all part of that. explain what you think it happening and how it's perceived overseas. >> the administration is stating a new approach to the region in which they are being pretty explicit about u.s. difficulty in determining the outcome of what they view the civil war in syria, rather than try to pretend they can shape it decisively. pulling back from that. described the approach generally as one of strategic humility recognizing there are limits to american power as we certainly saw it in the iraq war and afghanistan. i think what's bothering the people, the situation in syria is so violent, the loss of life so great, it's going to get worse this winter. we're going to have tens of thousands of people suffering in the cold and dying i fear. it's understandable that members of congress are upset. i haven't heard anybody, including the angry senators, propose a strategy that's much more coherent than what the administration is putting out. >> you were the first to report on how angry the saudis are, angry about the pre
. because on issues of taxation or fiscal policy or foreign policy. what you did with how we dealt with central america and nicaragua. today they disagree because they fight. because they're fighting with each other, they have to disagree on every single thing. it's anything that's got obama's jersey on it has to be slain. . >> and when we did the paperback version of the book just out, which we could've titled it's even worse than it was from when the book originally came out. i had a little bit of hope after the 2012 election when the permanent campaign might die down a little bit that it would get better. but it hasn't. but it's gotten worse than it was. and it really is an attempt to delegitimize the president and a party. but it's also that the core of the republican party, the leadership, there are no moderates anymore. the conservatives, the ones that you wrote about now have been eclipsed by the radicals. that's the difference. the republican party is -- >> like john cornyn, scared to death of ted cruz and he's trying to act like him. let me ask you a question that sounds l
. let's close with free trade. you're on the board of an organization called just foreign policy, and that organization is offering a reward to anyone who can give it a copy of the negotiating text of the trans-pacific partnership agreement. any takers so far? >> not so far. so the idea here is that we do have people involved in negotiating process, they have access to at least parts of the deal. so the hope is that someone from good conscience, presumably more than, you know, the hope of getting a big reward, will feel, you know, feel the urge to make it public and, you know, the organization just foreign policy -- i'm on the board, but i don't play an active role in running it -- will be happy to then post on the web so that, you know, people across the country can really, you know, in all the countries will have an opportunity to see it. >> so in the last word here, both of you, the argument is this trans-pacific partnership agreement will ensure a freer flow of goods and greater prosperity. the other side of it really serves essentially what we know about it, the corporate in
mccain and senator gram are just on a warpath in general about the obama administration foreign policy in the middle east arguing it is failing .. in many dimensions. i think there are so many elements that they oppose, the one i would focus on for your viewers is, i think the job that they have done communicating with even traditional and close friends and allies, the uae, jordan would be two obvious examples, has not been what you would expect or indeed what the u.s. needs right now. this period of change in the region you have got to really stand close to all the people who matter in terms of the execution of foreign policy. >> rose:. >> maliki is not only a tyrant but from the beginning he is sectarian to the core, and that means this shiite divide and he has taken the war to the sunni minority in iraq and i think in a way has done sort of iran's bidding in that way but i think even if you set the war in syria aside, he would have an enormous problem on his hands because, on his hands because he has not -- he has not tried to be inclusive in the way that he has governed iraq, and
